MrHangover (3763) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle, massive thnx to dEnk for sharing this! 2011 vintage. Pours an intensen dark black beer with a very minimal amount of light brown head on top. Aroma has loads of molasses, sweet whisky notes, some caramel and wood. The age is defintely showing in this one, loads of sweet licorice and some clumpy yeast sediment. Softly carbonated. Nice, good drinking imperial stout. Complex and balanced. Good stuff.

50belair (3252) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle. Brown pour with a kaki head. Mild boozy bouquet. The scotch just dominates the beer. Mild dark roasted malt and espresso back beats. A bit thin in the body. Good mouthfeel.

ctipping (999) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2015
330 mL bottle. A little transparency to a black body. Big khaki head. Smells nutty, caramel, vanilla. Boozy with some hops. Very light scotch. Scotch flavor is light too. Caramel. Milk chocolate. Boozy with a light whiskey finish. Medium body. Not that rich. Nice, though.

Leighton (17461) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Sourced from Kris Wines. Pours black-brown, clear, with a light, beige cream head. The nose holds mild burnt wood, torched marshmallows. Big sweet flavor with rich milk chocolate, more burnt marshmallows, moderate wood. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with plenty of sugary dark malts, further toasted marshmallow, nice dark chocolate. Very solid overall.

Douberd (4402) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2015
(De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis Macallan BA) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 11% Totally black colour on the body, with head consisting of bubbles, bursting quickly and leaving a thin line around the glass. Very nice aroma, penty of chocolate, whiskey, iodium, vanilla, more dark chocolate. Nice taste too, again plenty of chocolate, light alcohol notable, hints of the whiskey, chocolate cake, vanilla, dark fruits, prunes. Medium thin body, it could use a bit more. Soft carbonation. Very good.

Scopey (11533) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle at Scope 5K, thanks to Leighton. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is dark chocolate, earth, rocky road, some acidity, wood and light whisky action. The taste is rich, roasty, toast, earth, dark chocolate, raisin, plum, cherry and molasses, with only a whisper of whisky. Medium-full body and fine carbonation. Pretty tasty and nice depth. Good.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle shared at Scopey’s 5000th rate. I think thanks to Leighton but not sure. Black pour with a lightly tanned head which quickly disappears. Nose is full of whisky spice and milky chocolate. Quite a bit of vanilla, full of juicy raisins and has a hint of smoke. Complex but balanced nose and it’s good. Taste has plenty of dark fruit focus - sultana, raisin, prunes, followed by strong vanilla, milk chocolate and roasty coffee. Spice subtle on the finish. Mainly sweet with a little bitterness on the back end. A touch thin and lacks a little depth. A decent beer, I was probably expecting a little more from this barrel treatment
